Yeah no kidding, like a Dream Theater shirt with a middle finger on it.

I dress like this most days and I have to say that 100% of the times sexy drunk ladies have made borderline inappropriate (touching w/o asking) advances have been when I had the patch jacket on.

Something they put in the Tito's makes normie white ladies absolutey bonkers for alternative "metal" dudes, or at least this has been my observation as both a bartender and bystander.

I know paying for the licensing for the actual bands on the patches isn't worth it for a Halloween costume maker who likely only will get one year out of the design, but I have to laugh at some of the "free use" versions they used. My favorite is the "W.A.S.P." patch was replaced by a lookalike "WINGS" patch, because I just don't see Eddie being a huge fan of Paul McCartney's band, Wings, and this was before the NBC sitcom of the same name.

For the Motorhead patch, their knock-off says "Dexterity", perplexingly

"Eddie" Iron Maiden and Megadeth vs...cartoon lion and "MegametaL" is actually one I don't mind, and think it's pretty clever (for a kid's costume)...thought he lion could have used a bit more detail.

But what does bother me, is how they completely gave up on the back, arguably the most important part of a "battle vest", and probably the first piece that'd get added to someone's in-progress vest.

I'm really bothered by the fact that the shirt underneath is stitched to the vest.
